Excited for October!!

October is almost here, which means it's almost time for my sweet Gavin to celebrate his 5th birthday!! With us both having October birthdays, we look forward to the leaves changing colors and all the Halloween festivities the month brings. As I prepare for his big birthday bash I have been busy creating invitations for his big day.
He chose to have an alternative party this year, instead of the traditional Chuck E. Cheese or home party. So we will be heading to our local theme park for a fun filled day of rides, Halloween festivities, trick-or-treating, and a costume parade. Check out my little "batman" in the invitation that I created for his birthday. If you are in need of invitations for any event, I can create those for you. I usually send the picture to Walmart and have them print it on photo paper. They look great printed on card stock as well. This year, we're doing digital RSVP's so I just sent the invites by email. Saves paper and stamps! :-)

Down on the Farm: My Literacy Centers

NEW!!  Just posted my new format for my literacy centers this year.  Our next theme for September will be farms and I have created this literacy center pack to use in my center bins.  Each of my students have a center schedule that tells them which literacy center activity to do each day.  

I will be posting more information soon on how I teach reading and how I manage my classroom during that time.  Check back soon for those documents.  Have a wonderful Monday!
